president obama differently last night? >> um, um, you know, the interesting thing is that you mentioned glen gary and glen ross as opposed to the "west wing," which we're rehearsing right now on broadway. i would next time for the preparation i would get ricky roma from glen gehrig and glen ross in the room with president obama so that obama can practice dealing with lies, prevarications that people have been saying all day ricky the salesman. the salesman is a liar. romney to me comes across as a car salesman and you want to get out that have room because you're going to buy six cars before he's done with you. so practice. i'll give you an example of how easy it is to lie and how believable it is. let's just say i just told your watch and ask me if i stole your watch. >> cenk: you just took my watch. >> no, i didn't. >> cenk: i think did you. >> no, i didn't. why would i steal your watch. that's the most ridiculous thing i ever heard. does it look like i'm wearing a watch. >> cenk: i think i just saw it take it. >> 25 years i haven't worn a watch. you can ask my wife, my kids. i don't

. read about it the next day. >> bill: the debate last night did get off to -- this was the only moment of unity and harmony in the entire debate. it was the obama's 20th wedding anniversary. president obama would have been in the doghouse if he did not start the debate by recognizing first lady michelle obama in the front row. >> obama: i just want to wish, sweetie, you happy anniversary and let you know a year from now we will not be celebrating it in front of 40 million people. >> bill: maybe even 50 million people. which prompted mitt romney to get off his first zinger of the night. >> romney: congratulations to you, mr. president on your anniversary. i'm sure this was the most romantic place you could imagine here with me. congratulations. >> bill: there you go. >> a rare moment of real, genuine humor from romney bot. >> bill: it was downhill from there. we're going to have a lot of help getting through the debate. all of you, of course, again your calls at 1-866-55-press. diana, congresswoman from colorado wi

problems in four year stretches. i think barack obama can proudly say look at what we accomplished these are the issues. we are on the cusp of making real progress in the next term. >> you talked about the big problem that we had a few years ago in the banking industry. i want to take you back to your previous life as attorney general of the new york. you know the story with torn general snyderman with j.p. morgan. what do you think about that case? >> eric deserves credit for bringing the case. he made the overarching argument that there was structural fraud going on at bear stearns then acquired we morgan chase. the case is a rehashing of allegations from other cases over time. my food is ok, so be it, but he has pulled it together into a more coherentar particular let format. made the case the federal government should have made many years back, the federal government was queasy, unwilling to do it. eric deserves credit for the fortitude of trying to say to the public we will hold them accountable individually and institutionally for the wrong that did enormous harm to our socie

would you rather sit next to on an airplane flight for four hours president obama wins by 25 points. >> eliot: go on air force i. >> it is not that big a gap in terms of likability, you're also going to have a strong gap in terms of who do you like in terms of understanding your issues and your pocketbook. >> eliot: let me ask youing the same question, dick. there is a likability factor and the white house has been enormously effective over three or four months starting with bain. then the tax return issue. then the 47% tape which is a self-inflicted wound by the romney campaign. the aggregate effect of all of this has metastasized. people just don't like mitt romney. maybe intentionally unfair but how does he reverse that and on economic issues, if we don't feel he relates to us, how does he turn that around? >> i think voters think the obama agenda failed. the stimulus bill that was signed with great fanfare not far from here in denver, colorado, i think people see as a failure. people have rejected, i th

that mitt romney can stand up to barack obama tomorrow? does he have the stature? will he look an equal on the stage tomorrow? >> just by standing next to him he will be able to do that. both of them will look like they belong in the room. they're both very skilled debaters. they're -- neither of them has given particular passionate outbursts. they're both very controlled debaters. it is a switch for romney. during the republican primary debates, he was really the front-runner and everyone was trying to tear him down. he was supposed to stand up to them. here he's coming in as the underdog. he needs to be on the attack. >> eliot: wanna if you needed to say to mitt romney, here is what you must accomplish tomorrow because you are down ten points in the swing states, you only have this one moment to capture the public's excitement and enthusiasm, how does he do it? >> first avoid the unforced error. time and time again the albatross of the romney campaign. they're making trouble for themselves where there d
